Ushers are volunteers that dress uniformly to greet and escort worshipers into the sanctuary. Other usher duties include handing out orders of worship, collecting the offering, and “guarding” the doors of the sanctuary when worship is in progress. At Grace United Methodist Church Los Angeles, there are four usher boards:
- Adult Usher Board
- Men’s Usher Team
- Youth Usher Board
- On-call Senior Usher/Bereavement Board
On the 3rd Saturday of each month at 9:30 a.m., all ushers are invited to meet together for planning and training purposes. New volunteers are always welcome to join the appropriate board; attend a Saturday meeting or speak with any usher.
